It's been another delightfully busy week from this end. We managed to take a couple of days to visit my brother and SIL who live a few hours north from us. They are in the Central Coast wine country so we always end up doing a bit of wine tasting while we are there. It was a delightful day and we were thrilled to sit out and soak up the warm sun.

Check out this make believe bird feeder at one of the wineries. I really think I could make this a real feeder with a few adjustments.
We also visited a car/air museum. They actually had a plane that my husband flew when we were in the Navy. He had to land this thing on an aircraft carrier!!! It was a delight to see it restored and looking just like it did when he flew it. The nickname for it is "the Stoof" (in real aircraft language it is a S-2).

We enjoyed three grandsons and one dog for the weekend. In spite of the rainy Sunday, we got a little kite flying in too. Rainy day session included many wicked games of Hearts while snacking on popcorn.
I only managed one good day of sewing, but I did accomplish a few projects. I made an Easter dress which will eventually have a pinafore to go with it and a couple of mug rugs.
The garden has also been beckoning. The rain has brought lots of weeds that need to be pulled, but the flowers are really popping right now.

Lastly...the winner of the BINGO card was Carmen. She has received it and I am excited to see how she does with the BINGO game.
BTW...What do you think of the new Blogger interface? I tried it, but switched back again. It kept telling me that I could not leave comments and I really did not like how you follow blogs. I'm sure they will probably make us all switch over soon. SIGH!
